Training and development

We deliver impactful research by attracting, retaining and developing high quality and ambitious researchers.

You will benefit from award-winning courses, workshops and careers advice specifically aimed at researchers throughout your career. The Cardiff Researcher Programme covers over 100 training topic areas which will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to run successful projects. You can take your career to the next level with our leadership and management programme, and study leave is available to some academic staff for the advancement of specific research projects.

In 2014, we retained the HR Excellence in Research Award for another 4 years, illustrating our commitment to your career development. We were also shortlisted for the Times Higher Award for Outstanding Support for Early Career Researchers in the same year.

Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers

The UK Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers is an agreement which sets out clear standards that research staff can expect from us as well as their responsibilities as researchers.
